Yoppy Pieter (1984) is a visual storyteller, born and raised in Jakarta. He has attended a number of photography workshops, including the Joop Swart Masterclass by World Press Photo in 2019 and was selected for the South-East Asia & Oceania 6×6 Global Talent Program in 2017. He started his photography career since 2013, after he resigned as an advertising coordinator.
He decided to travel and joined some workshops to improve his skill because he realized that photography is more than just taking beautiful images. He believes he lives surrounded by the stories, earthquakes, evolution, birth, disappointment and loves of life. Those stories can be only captured by looking closer and seeing with a pure heart, honesty, and trust. Photography is a poetry and a visual dialog with the self and the circumstances around him.
